Ben Godfrey is poised to pledge his longer term future to Norwich City by signing an extended Carrow Road contract, according to Sky Sports.

Godfrey has been touted with the likes of Manchester United earlier this summer but Sky Sports transfer blog report on Monday lunchtime he is 'close to reaching an agreement' on a new five year deal to ward off potential suitors.

The England Under-20 international is under contract until 2022 (with a further one year option) after signing an improved contract 12 months ago.

But the former York trainee has since emerged as a key figure in the Canaries' Championship title winning campaign at centre back, forging an impressive partnership with Christoph Zimmermann.

Godfrey scored four goals in 36 appearances for the Canaries after grabbing his chance around the turn of the year following injury and suspension to the likes of Timm Klose and Grant Hanley.
